PUBLIC WORKS LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The CRS program is widely recognized and highly successful. Over 1300 designations have been awarded to Road Supervisors throughout Ontario. A combination of education, experience, and continuing professional development is required to earn the credential.

If you are an employee within the public sector hired to supervise core infrastructure/road related duties, you may make application to the AORS Certification Board for the CRS designation.

Eligibility for the CRS certification program has been broadened from municipal employees to public sector employees or
contracted individuals (i.e. area maintenance contractors) who supervise road-related duties. This change acknowledges the alternative core infrastructure service delivery approaches taken by municipalities, the province and related government agencies.
